The Lyrics

IKEA!
I thought it would be a panacea
My home would feel so settled, but—mamma mia!
The builder I've been dating should have prob'ly come

along
'Cause it's all assembled wrong

It's just a bed!
[It's a "MALM"]

IKEA!
The bookcase there looks like the Tower of Pisa
I guess this wasn't such a clever idea
Didn't know that my carpentry had to be so strong
But it's all assembled wrong

It's just a bed!
[It's a "MALM"]

IKEA!
My heart just isn't in it as I unpack the bath
Why did I let you lead me down this garden path?
I wish I'd stopped myself in time, instead of this

crazy task
Am I a plumbing-fixture polymath?

It's just a bed!
[It's a "MALM"]

Resume!
Here's this beautiful white sink I saw on the next page
I need to snake it out to the sewer—now, where's my

stream gauge?
I'm sure in a pickle (sorry: "GURKA INLAGD")
You've got me model-kitchened, baby!

It's just a bed!
[It's a "MALM"]
I'm not happy!
[It's a "MALM"]
I'll need an attic!

The pacing assembly of this parody was a little tad shaky, but I'm voting 455 (and I'll sleep good in my own MALM on that).

Thank you, Peter! This was definitely a tough one to tackle, pacingwise--the phrasing in the original gets pretty quirky at times. (When I printed out my lyrics to sing aloud, I had to mark them up to indicate where the stresses fall.) (:v>
